The Fondazione’s last initiatives
Oak Barrel Baroque: Michael Beutler returns to La Raia
Michael Beutler, four years after his project BALES 2014/2017, returns to Gavi to create Oak Barrel Baroque for Fondazione La Raia–arte cultura territorio, a work composed of wooden beams and barrique staves, inspired by the architecture of Palladio and the typical Italian churches in small town squares. A shelter, a place in which to linger, a small theater where the performance Care Selve. Florilegio by Aline Nari will be staged during the opening.
BIOMEGA Multiverso is the exhibition of Cosimo Veneziano organized at Tenuta Cucco, the organic farm owned by the Rossi Cairo family at Serralunga d’Alba. Starting from a research on the use of biotechnologies in the food sector, Veneziano has created an installation of silk-screen printings and embroideries on fabric in dialogue with an uncommon marble borer, a butterfly that destroys corn.
